## Does Aiws go away?

Chronic cases of AIWS are quite untreatable and must wear out, eventually. A person suffering from the disorder may have distortions and hallucinations several times during the day, and the manifestations may take sometime to subside.

## Can Micropsia be cured?

Treatment varies for micropsia due to the large number of different causes for the condition. Treatments involving the occlusion of one eye and the use of a prism fitted over an eyeglass lens have both been shown to provide relief from micropsia.

## Why things look smaller when far away?

When things are closer to you, they take up more of your field of view, so they seem bigger. When they’re further away, they take up less of your field of view, and so seem smaller. One way to measure our field of view is to use an angle. The further away the object is, the smaller this angle will be.

## Why do far objects look smaller?

As an object gets closer, the visual angle increases, so the object appears larger. As the object moves farther away, the visual angle decreases, making the object appear smaller.

## How much do things shrink with distance?

If we take a 1 meter object at a distance of 2 meters, we get ≈28.1°; at a distance of 4 meters ≈14.2°; at a distance of 8 meters we get ≈7.15°; etc. Each doubling of distance yields an angle which is just slightly greater than half the previous angle.

## Why do closer objects appear to move faster?

Things appear to move slower when they are far away because they seem smaller, and take longer to cross our line of vision. Likewise, they appear to move faster when they are close by, because they seem bigger.

## How does an object’s apparent size depend on its distance?

Angular measurements are used to indicate the apparent size of an object in the sky. The apparent size of an object is simply the size it appears to be. It therefore depends on the object’s actual size and its distance from the observer.

## What is the relationship between angle and distance?

The closer the object, the more the angle changes. We are still calculating using a triangle with distance and angle but instead of size we have a measurement baseline, which is the distance between our two measurement positions. The same triangle formula applies for small angles a (measured in degrees).
